kicks into high gear. congress has just weeks to increase our debt ceiling. fitch, a leading credit ratings agency, says a repeat of the 2011 debt limit crisis would spark a formal review of our country's aaa rating. that could mean a downgrade by them. now you might remember, s&p, a different agency, already downgraded our country in 2011. that was the first time in our history that that happened. the president is taking a hard-line stand, issuing a warning of his own to the gop. >> we have to pay our bills. congress has two choices here. we can act responsibly and pay america's bills. or they can act irresponsibly and put america through another economic crisis. but they will not collect a ransom in exchange for not crashing the american economy. jenna: republicans like congressman jason chaffetz blasting back against the president. >> i think the president was terribly irresponsible today. to say he will not talk about it because he is above it, but blame all of congress, in part congress helped create this problem but we are going to hear to solve this problem. i got elected to

the debt ceiling. this is the question we posed. is reduce the federal deficit a worthy goal? this is interesting you may recall white house press secretary made news by stating that deficit reduction is, quote not a worthy goal onto itself. 77% of voters disagree with them and that includes large majorities of republicans, independents and democrats. what is your take on this? >> again i don't want to be a downer here, the question is what urgency to do they place on that. we had an election two months ago where there were two candidates, one was more focused on cutting the deficit and reducing our long term debt and one didn't think it was a big concern. the one who didn't think it was a big concern won the election. yes, voters seem to say that is an issue they agree with, but when it came to election day two months ago that certainly wasn't one of the top issues they voted on because they voted for the candidate who wasn't embody go it. >> heather: through his actions, as well. that leads to this, how f or if it should be raised? should the debt limit be raised again, 23%

to raise -lg the debt ceiling when he was a senator said it was irresponsible to do so. he said it was because of a failure of leadership. we have a president who is addicted to spending and he needs to just look in the mirror because he is the source of the problem. it's his healthcare law, it's the failed stimulus package, these are things that the president has forced through, the democrats have gone w and it is onwith, and it's one of the reasons we are so deeply in debt. if you're a family and bills are coming in, you take a look at the bills and say, how can we make sure that we pay these bills, but more importantly you want to say how can we make sure we don't have bigger bills to pay in the future. bill: what idea would you support? are you on john boehner's side who says we'll give you a dollar in debt if you give us a dollar in spending cuts, or pat toomey the republican senator from pennsylvania says you can make priority payments to make sure the military is covered and items like that, and then make less priority payments further off in the future. would you go for
